Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano rumbles, could threaten air travel

Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano rumbles, could threaten air travel
In 2010, an Icelandic volcano with an unpronounceable name spewed an ash cloud into the skies that disrupted travel for millions of passengers and cost airlines a small fortune.

Now another Icelandic volcano is rumbling, prompting fears of a repeat of the travel chaos that afflicted northern Europe when the Eyjafjallajokull volcano did its worst. Its name-Bardarbunga-is a little less daunting, but it could still cause trouble.

While there’s no sign yet of magma moving to the surface, according to Iceland’s Meteorological Office, something’s definitely up beneath the Earth’s surface.In what the Meteorological Office describes as an “intense earthquake swarm,” scientists registered some 2,600 earthquakes between early Saturday morning and Monday evening.
